Expect Great Things


Remember when you were a child, and you thought you could do anything? Whether that was learning to walk, climb a tree or become president, chances are you were bursting with optimism about what you could accomplish. You expected great things.

But now, as an adult, has some of that optimism vanished? It’s easy to find ourselves lowering our expectations, especially during a pandemic and the lead-up to a contentious election. How can we see the glass half full when we keep getting pummeled with stressful and depressing news? 

Even so, today, I want to encourage you to expect great things, just like you did when you were little. When we have faith in our future, things start working out in different, unexpected, and even exciting ways. Trust me on this!

Not sure how to start looking on the bright side? In this week’s episode of the Everyday Happy Show podcast, I share my own experience on how to expect great things, even when life is throwing you curveballs.

Plus, I share an exercise that’ll help you shift your perspective in just a few minutes!
